1992 is the eighth studio album by American rapper The Game. It was released on October 14, 2016, by Blood Money Entertainment and eOne Music. The album features a single guest appearance by R&B singer Jeremih, as well as uncredited appearances by Osbe Chill, Lorine Chia, Sonyae Elise and Jason Derulo.
Two months after releasing his previous double album The Documentary 2 and The Documentary 2.5 respectively, The Game took to Instagram to announce his next project entitled "1992". Without saying too much about the album, he did reveal the album will have no guest appearances and the project will be executive produced by Nigerian producer and frequent collaborator Bongo. The album's artwork was designed by Joe Cool, famed artist who is most famous for designing the cover of Snoop Dogg's famed album Doggystyle.
Explaining the concept of the album in an interview, The Game says the album is based on his personal experiences as a 12 year old growing up in Compton, California and the surrounding events including the LA Riots, O.J. Simpson's murder trial and the 1992 NBA All-Star Game. Aiming to perfect and utilise story telling in his lyrics, hip-hop artist Nas coached The Game in this aspect by speaking daily, listening to and sending back and forth tracks from the album. Long time collaborator and record producer Bongo is also described as having helped complete the album and providing production for the project. Talking about the album, Bongo describes it as having the approach of Golden age hip-hop in a way younger audiences can relate to and enjoy it.
